She was a lady of great beauty, and history records that she was as good as she was beautiful. Upon one occasion while attending a feast at Windsor Castle she was dancing with Edward III and lost her garter which the King took up from the floor. Some of the Nobles that stood around were seen to smile, whereupon the King remarked "that the time should shortly come when the greatest honor imaginable should be paid to that Garter". Thus originated the Royal order of the Knights of the Garter with its motto in French " Honi soit que maly pense".
